BROC­COLI

High in an­tiox­i­dants and vi­ta­mins, and guards against can­cer and heart dis­ease ac­cord­ing to a US study. Part-fry it in but­ter, then throw in a splash of wa­ter and cover the pan to steam it the rest of the way.

KALE

Rich in lutein, which fights age-re­lated dis­ease, and vi­ta­min E, which protects against pro-in­flam­ma­tory mol­e­cules called cy­tokines. Sprin­kle with lemon juice and bake it for kale ‘crisps’.

SWEET POTATO

Tech­ni­cally not green, but high in vi­ta­min C, which can stop the re­lease of a cy­tokine called in­ter-leukine IL 6. Chop into wedges, sprin­kle with pa­prika and olive oil, and roast for 20 min­utes.
